We ferried the planes over to Espiritu and landed them on the F4U fighter strip. The seebees were clearing a strip for us on top of some high ground. Right? Looking at Google Earth there is a strip a short distance down the coast line where VMB 611 was stationed. I can't find the strip where we were but I do know that it was on some high ground some where on the island. I stood guard one nite and the dammed bats, as big as eagles pestered me all nite. Next day went out into jungle area to shoot those #$##$$. Almost looked good enough to eat as all we ate was MUTTON 12 times a day...
